SLI is a technology introduced by Nvidia that allows two graphics units to run in parallel to produce a single output.

The company has focused on speed and performance, and is positioning the product as an "insanely fast" notebook for the gaming market.

Users can choose between two Nvidia graphics cards, the GeForce Go 7950 GTX with 512M bytes of memory for high-performance PC gaming, or the Quadro FX 2500M with 512M bytes of memory if they are looking for a high-performance portable workstation, the company.

Other features of the notebook include a Webcam, Bluetooth and 802.11 connectivity, and a theater audio system, HP said. The company did not disclose the pricing of the product.
